We’ve all had a can of Coke at least once in our life. Moreover, we have seen this controversial soft-drink make the news every now and again. And, unlike Kim Kardashian it’s not due to its looks (good one, right?). One of the intended applications for the drink was of a patent medicine, it was invented in the late 19th century by John Pemberton. Coca-Cola (more popularly known as Coke) was bought out by businessman Asa Griggs Candler, whose marketing tactics led Coke to its dominance of the world soft-drink market throughout the 20th century.
The drink’s name refers to two of its original ingredients, which were kola nuts (a source of caffeine) and coca leaves (yes, it’s the same plant from which cocaine is processed.) However, did you know that people around the world, over the years have found new and interesting applications for it other than drinking.
